  • These were shot in JPG mode.  Not only that, but to many on this forum sacrilegious, the camera was in full auto mode.   This is my usual setting when I do travel photography. I have found in ...
  • Created discussion thread XF1 in the mountains
    Although I have a decent set of different cameras to choose from, my X30 has been my most used camera on photo vacations.  Today I remembered my XF1 and decided to take it for a hike.  It still ...

  • Really agree.  I missed the wider aperture several times.  It would be the only reason I would take my Pentax K3ii on my next trip; I have a 15mm (= 21.5mm in 35 format) lens that is small and ...
  • I own or have owned a large variety of camera gear, but the little X30 continues to impress. I have mine equipped with a Lensmate Thumb grip, and handling is just great. I just had a cruise to the ...

  • Created discussion thread Frustrated with iPad and iOS
    For years I have been using Aperture, then Capture One on Mac and Windows. Decided to try my new iPad Pro on a trip. So I tried Apples own Photos, Google Photos, Snapseed, Keenai and Affinity and ...
  • Don't really need another bag but I'll take yours for $25 shipped.  But it has to be shipped NLT next Monday as I am travelling.  Will pay PayPal gift, no fee to you.
  • Created discussion thread bird vacancy (X30)
    Still like the X30 as my go-to walk around camera... Taken RAW and brightened up a bit in Capture One. Looks like these gulls like sitting on the posts, only a few left!
  • I've used the XS1 as a travel camera for a number of years, including in the rain and on Zodiacs through surf and rain.  Never had a problem.  Now using mostly my Pentax gear which most assuredly ...

  • I'm not that far behind at 75 and we (DW and I) get a lot of comments about our hiking.  We've been known to hit over 10,000 ft and some pretty rugged terrain.  But I am slowing down but I'll ...
  • Created discussion thread Why I'm keeping my K3ii
    I'm an admitted equipment geek, and have had most all brands/models of digital cameras. I've been on DPR for 18 years. And 2 years ago I switched from my lovely GH4 and fast f2.8 zooms to the ...
  • Created discussion thread From MBPro to Dell XPS
    I'man amateur photographer, so my needs are not those of a pro.  I travel a lot, so I need a portable PC, and I've been using a MBPro since 2012.  Retina screen, quad core i7.  No issues, but I ...
  • My 18-135 creeps when hiking and the lens points down. Check out my original post, when I used a rubber band to overcome the problem. I tried some of the thicker bands but they made manual ...
  • Created discussion thread Dynamic Range, K3ii (2 img)
    Testing is cool, but taking pictures for real tells me a lot more about my gear.  So here is a picture of early morning sun shining through a steam cloud from a geyser at the Grand Prismatic Pond ...
